The procedure involves spraying on airbrush makeup using tiny mist of dots to cover the skin. The application makes the skin appear smoother. Once the makeup is applied it begins to dry and stays on the skin surface. When dry, it will not smudge even to a light touch.
When applying airbrush makeup start with the air aimed away from the face then move to the face area. Apply slowly, with just a light pressure placed on the trigger, to avoid streaking and create even layers. Avoid painting on eyes that are open, on the ear canals or the nose. It is suggested to cover openings with cotton balls or swabs. If you ask the person you are applying makeup on to hold their breath, breathe with the person as well. Ask the person to breathe out slowly when you are spraying at the mouth and nose areas.

Though airbrush makeup has a lot of advantages, the makeup and equipment needed are very expensive. You need an airbrush compressor that costs several hundred dollars, and only specially-made airbrush makeup should be used.
